constant bladder infection

My 4 year old daughter has been fighting bladder/urinary track infections for a whole 8 months. First of all the doctor would put her on antibiotics for 10 days then do a urine culture and the results would come out great (negative) then she would be fine for approx. one week and then she would get flu-like symptoms (it's never the flu) like for example 103.7 fever and constant vomiting (keep in mind she also has low iron). I then take her to the doctor again and sure enough the infection is back. The doctor then repeats the same thing with the antibiotics and this infection has repeated the same pattern for the last 8 months. I just don't know what to do or where to turn anymore. My daughter was also put on Ditropan. The doctor wants her on that for several months. The doctor wants her to take Bactrim for a good 5-6 months for the constant infections she has been getting, but just last week (after almost a month and a half of taking Bactrim) she started getting diarrhrea with blood in the surrounding mucus (which I understand could be a side effect to antibiotics) and on top of taking the Bactrim she got her bladder infection back again.

The doctor has gone to war with the bacteria, which would be fine if the bacteria were in a test tube and not in a patient. What is left out here is the basic health of the patient. Your daughter is the so-called "terrain" in the micro-organism vs. terrain argument which has been going on in microbiology and infectious disease for over 100 years. What needs to be focused on is your daughter's diet, daily routine, spiritual and emotional well-being, sleep patterns, etc. Something about your daughter and her environment has made her bladder a garden for bacteria. If you can find a doctor skilled in the use of the Sanum or the SanPharma remedies you will also have found a person who considers the biological terrain as well at the offending organism. Obviously antibiotics are not going to work in this case, at least not until the terrain is overhauled.
